htmlText problem

I’ve ran into a interesting problem and wanted to see if anyone can fix. As the text scrolls to the left it breaks the font tag so you actually see the html code instead of the red text. This was my original code and my original fla and swf.

var lv:LoadVars = new LoadVars();
lv.onData = function(urgentnews:String) {
if (urgentnews == “No Urgent News” || urgentnews == “no ugrent news” || urgentnews == “NO URGENT NEWS” || urgentnews == “nourgentnews” || urgentnews == “NOURGENTNEWS” || urgentnews == “No urgent news” || urgentnews == “NO Urgent News” || urgentnews == “NO URGENT news” || urgentnews == “no Urgent news” || urgentnews == undefined ){
} else {
_root.text = “<font color=’#cc0000’><b>Urgent News: </b></font>” + urgentnews + " ";

On another thread explained my problem being the _root.text and told me to put this instead. I changed my text field to myText and replaced the variables.

_root.myText.htmlText = “<font color=’#cc0000’><b>Urgent News: </b></font>” + urgentnews + " ";

The only problem is i can’t figure out how to replace the variables on the movie clip that actually does the scrolling. The movie clip is located on the 3rd frame, to the right of the right of the text box.

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
tmp = _root.text.substr(0, 1);
_root.text = _root.text.substr(1, _root.text.length-1)+tmp;

I’ve tried several different ways of putting _root.myText and other variations but it just simply does not scroll.

I don’t know if this forum is against offering money but i’d gladly pay to have this resolved.

Even if it’s as simple as downloading my fla posted above making the changes and emailing it back to [email protected]
